The My Painting Shirt Podcast is for the Party Planner, Costume Maker, Crafter, and DIYer who wants to take their parties and entertaining to the next level. In each podcast I cover a new party theme or crafting project to help you get inspired for your next event or craft day! We will discuss food and decorating tips, theme parties, making props, crafting, Halloween costumes, many things Disney, and about the things I have learned to do (and not do) during my experiences throwing a variety of theme parties for friends and employers. On a budget? No problem, so am I! We’ll cover low cost ideas that you can do yourself as well as some higher end options. You can follow along with the podcast show notes on my website at MyPaintingShirt.com and see photos of my events and projects from each episode.

JP is a delight. Her ideas are very clever and simple to imitate. It will make my parties look like I'm clever as well. JP's blog is clear, concise and easy to understand. Seeing the results on her website helps as well.
I want JP to throw all my parties!
I'm only four podcasts in and JP already has me inspired to throw a party right now! Whether I'm following along on her website or have it on in the background I get a lot of great ideas. I love that her DIY decorating and craft ideas are based in the real world in regards to time, budget, and skill. She's kind of like the Martha Stewart for the 99%. I am eager to see what kinds of parties she's going to throw in the future and wonder how I can get invited to one!
Pleasure to listen to, clear explanations easy to follow. Looking forward to more!
